I guess the prednisone and rectal cortisone meds finally caught up with me because although I am out of my flare finally, the side effect is an anal fungal infection--at least that's what the doctor thinks is what happened. He gave me a fungal ointment but it's just making things worse. Anti fungal powder seems to be the only thing that helps, but it's only temporary. It seemed to start shortly after I started the Flora Q, oddly enough--you would have thought that would have prevented this.
Has anyone ever had this problem? If so, were you able to get rid of it and how? This itching and burning is driving me nuts.
